Gloucester Rugby: Knoyle likely to have played last game in Cherry and White

Tavis Knoyle is given his marching orders

TAVIS Knoyle is likely to have played his last game for Gloucester after being slapped with a four week ban.

The Wales scrum-half was sent off for punching Leroy Houston during the Cherry and Whites’ ill-tempered West Country derby defeat to Bath.

And at an RFU disciplinary hearing he was suspended until May 20. There is a chance he could still play for Gloucester if they qualify for the European play-off by finishing seventh in the league but that appears increasingly unlikely.

Meanwhile Sila Puafisi was suspended for a week after he was also sent off in the match for a recklessly high tackle on Nick Abendanon.

Puafisi will be free to play on April 22, and will be available for Gloucester’s final two regular season games against London Irish and Worcester Warriors.
